Effect of Ru/C and Ni/TiO2 on the Hydrogen Generation from Metal Hydrides

Fahriye Dönmez and Nezihe Ayas
Abstract—Hydrogen is at a good level among all energy sources as a clean, renewable and sustainable energy source. Hydrogen has high energy intensity, an ideal energy carrier for the environment with zero emission and can be produced in a controlled way by selecting suitable catalysts from metal hydrides having a high content of hydrogen among the other production methods. In this study commercial (Ru/C) and synthesized (Ni/TiO2) catalyst was used in order to produce hydrogen from sodium borohydride. The activities of the synthesized catalysts were examined in the hydrolysis reaction and the results compared with the commercial catalyst. The effect of reaction parameters such as temperature and time, the amount of catalyst and the loading ratio of Ni on the support material on the hydrolysis reaction was examined.

Index Terms—Sodium borohydride, Ru/C, Ni/TiO2, nanocatalyst, hydrogen.
